Default Looking for 40 size sport electric

After several years off I am returning to the hobby. Previously I had decades of experience including 480 size electric planes and helis, also gas and glo. I am looking for an electric plane slightly larger than a Pulse 15 like the pulse 40 but the kit appears to be an old design. Maybe you fellows could suggest a sport plane/motor combo using 2s 4000 mAh batts. that would be easier for me to see than the 480 size planes and better suited to a grass field.
Thanks!

Good day sir. As an old flyer myself I have switched to all electric power. I am not familiar with the pulse 15 or 40 you mentioned but there are many 40 size models to choose from. As for a 40-46 size motor I can recommend the "Turngy G46 550kv or 670kv electric motor. I found mine at " Hobbyking.com". As for the battery it requires a 5 cell lipo. Running with a 14x10 electric prop it will fly your 40 size model with vigor if needed. I'm not aware of a 40 size motor that will run on a 2 cell lipo. Hope I have been of some help.

Default 40 size electric motor

Good day again sir. I live & fly on my land at 7700' elevation in Colorado. The air here is much thinner than at closer to sea level. This thin air requires a different learning curve in order to fly. The motor I suggested to you will fly 40/46 size models at this elevation, no problem. I use APC 14/10 props. This motor will also fly 60 size models with high wing type large sq.inch areas. If I can be of any further help please feel free to PM me. Good flying to you.

You might look at World Models and their US distributor Airborne Models.
